Tedx Boise Lecture
  • Charles R. Honts, Boise State University
Honts will be giving a talk on lying and technological advances in lie detection. As Honts states, “Despite what most people believe, and what some TED speakers have said, science clearly shows that people are poor at interpersonal lie detection achieving accuracy rates of about 54 percent. Training in reading body language, facial expressions, etc., provides no benefit … However, new interpersonal approaches based on modern theories of cognitive load are offering real progress toward solving this important everyday problem.”
